What was your MC name? Orange
When did you cross? Spring 2008 … wow that makes me feel old
Who are your bigs? My Bigs are Sequoyah Johnson and Sarah Marzano.
Where did you graduate high school? O’Connor High School. My high school had an ag barn. It smelled like poop most days. It was disgusting.
Why did you choose Baylor? What I usually tell people is because it had a really great music program (which it does), and my horn instructor from high school sent most of his students to Baylor (which he did). But the TRUTH is that I was dating a guy in high school my junior year that decided to go to Baylor, and then my senior year I applied and got in. I broke up with him after band week right before the first day of classes during freshman year of college.
While at Baylor, where did you live? I started at North Russell, then moved into The Centre with a Tau Beta and a Bugwber my sophomore and junior year. Then for my last year and a half at Baylor I lived at 114 with Brenna Middleton, Katie Hart, and Jeanne Knepper.
What is your favorite place and tradition on the Baylor campus? My favorite place on campus is 5th st. I had a very special moment happen last year during the homecoming parade on 5th st.- which so happens to be my favorite tradition. c: My boyfriend at the time proposed to me during the homecoming parade. Word to the wise - pick your drivers carefully if you are a nominee! You may end up a wife!
What did you play in BUGWB? I was a hornstar! But I was also on staff my last year.
Did you hold any leadership positions in Band Council, within your section, or TBS? Oh... where to begin. I was on Band council as recruiting representative two years in a row. I was keeper, service chair three times, VP of Education twice, unofficial blog person (it wasn’t an office yet...). I was a squad leader, a section leader, and then on staff. I think that’s it...
Why did you decide to join Tau Beta Sigma? Everybody was doing it... but seriously t was the thing that all my friends were in or deciding to do.
What was your favorite Tau Beta event? The two third degrees I got to watch the two classes I trained go through. Being VP was one of my favorite parts of being in TBS. Watching those ladies cross was so great!
What did you do with your degree? I got alternatively certified to teach music.
What are you doing now/what do you want to continue doing? I am the assistant band director at Harris Academy Middle School in San Antonio ISD. I really sucked at it at first, but I’m getting the hang of it, and sucking at lot less now. I definitely want to continue teaching middle school band for a little bit, but eventually the goal will be to teach high school band somewhere in texas. Gotta have my marching band. Maybe I’ll even get involved in Drum Corps again at some point at teach DCI during the summers.
Tell us a funny/awesome Tau Beta story? (K-Psi can be included) Is it allowed to be my wedding? Back in August I married a kpsi from the Beta Alpha chapter. That was awesome. Half of our bridal party was made up of Tau Beta and K-psi friends. Like I said - awesome. And we continue to live happily ever after.
Show us some of your favorite Tau Beta pictures as well as pictures of your bigs/littles :)
Remember how I said I got married... Ya most of these are going to be wedding pictures...
